commissioners are doing, all over my state, all over america. we have got to recognize that washington is spending too much, not taxing too little. how can we ask americans to pay more in taxes when washington is not even willing to cut cut $61 billion from our bloated bureaucracy? if i have a proposition from our colleagues who wish to raise taxes before we consider asking the american people to pay another cent in taxes, why don't we first drain every cent of waste from the federal bureaucracy? we will never truly dig ourselves out of this crisis and put this nation on a real path to prosperity unless we bring our spending under control. america's strength is not measured by the size of our government, but the scope of our freedoms and the vigor and vitality of the american people and their willingness to invest and work hard for the future. that's what makes us strong. endless spending, taxing and borrowing is a certain path to decline, and we're on that path today and we must get off it. so we know the threat, we know what we need to do. the economy is trying to rebound. so let's t

for america to pull back from the world. just last week the house sent us a resolution for 2011 that imposes draconian cuts. the budget would cut humanitarian aid by 50%. aand putting thousands of lives at risk. it would cut two-thirds of the fund devoted to increasing resilience to climate change in the most vulnerable regions of the world. this means over 400,000 people would have received a life- saving treatment will now leader on waiting lists as their hiv diagnosis becomes a death sentence. it would cut food and education for the world's poorest children. there is something about these cuts that i think does violence to the judeo-christian ethic by which so many claim to be guided in their public lives. these cuts are not abstractions. these are the values of our country. cutting these programs will do nothing to rein in our budget deficit but it will cost thousands of lives and cost us our reputation in the world. by reducing our capacity of around the globe we will increase the threats to our own country. i know secretary clinton feels just as strongly about these issues and the nece
